I use meguiars 105/205 combo on everything and just use different pads. 105 can get a bit messy but its cuts quick and skips the bs. :p

No kidding!...fortunately I only do a 3 step like this 2X/ yr (luckily my car is garaged at home and work)...I tried the Menzerna 4000 for the first time with an orange pad and wish I went slightly more aggressive on the polish..not quite enough bite to take out some surface imperfections...but mine is TiAg so cant tell unless you're at an angle...cant beat the way the IR looks when properly detailed! Maybe I'll try the 105/205 at some point...the Porter is great...I also let its weight supply the downforce like you mentioned, but my garage with my wife's car in there as well is very cramped...makes it a bit more of a challenge...I'm jealous of the space you have to work! I've thought about starting a detail business on the side but can't decide if the $$ for the work & time is worth it...curious what you're able to charge??
